A brand new range from the UK’s premier Handstitched Leather Belt specialists.
Gift boxed, optional gift message for recipient. Can be returned if unsuitable.
The Vibe range comes in a contemporary colour combination, bearing a striking, while classic, solid stainless steel buckle.
This Handstitched Border Vibe is made from a strong, single layer of premium English black leather with a full border, stitched entirely by hand, in purple. It's a stylish and clever way to say, I wear a formal black belt - but I like other colours too.
A great way to match the lining of your jacket or the stripe in your tie, and still set a good example...
Variations in the Vibe buckle and colour combination can be found in Classic, Handstitched Border, Decoratively Handstitched, Raised and Design Raised styles, hopefully to suit most fans of the design.
We offer six different size options, from XS-XXL and can also cater for sizes outside these ranges, available to order. Just ask.
... size guide
The best way to get the right size is to measure the leather on a current belt, from where it touches the buckle to the most used hole - then select the nearest size option.
If this information is not readily available, you could just add two inches to your trouser size then select the nearest size option - this is less accurate but the belt can be exchanged if it's not the right size.
... a firm favourite
As this belt is worn in, in a similar way to wearing in new boots and shoes, the leather will react to the natural oils in your hands and to your body heat, becoming more supple over time. As it moulds beautifully to your shape and develops its unique natural patina, it will result in a wonderfully personal leather accessory, thus making it a firm favourite for years to come.
... The Leather
Sedgwick's First Grade English Bridle Butt leather. Arguably the best strap leather in the world, this full-grain butt cut is especially known for its strength, durability, density and lustre. Obtained from the supplier with the Royal Warrant, leather is, of course, a natural material so a little slight marking and colour variation are expected. No two belts will be the same.
Cut from a single layer of Black leather in this Sedgwick range, it has the strength to stand up to the everyday vigours of being a belt and is made to last, using the traditional hand tools of the English Saddlery trade.
Take care when wearing with light coloured items as, with all coloured leather products, some colour transfer may occur.
... The Stainless Steel Buckle
is built to last and also obtained from the holder of the Royal Warrant. It is carefully handstitched into place with a vibrant purple thread which then carries on around the full border of the belt.
